“Mark your calendars, as Malaysia’s ultimate games convention is truly a not-to-be-missed event! The pandemic has engendered and enabled the skyrocketing of the digital games industry in Southeast Asia as many continue to work from home and spend a record number of hours playing video games.
This convention serves as a melting pot of ideas, engagements and opportunities that is vital to sustaining the excitement surrounding the regional games industry. Here is where next-generation gaming legends are made,” said Mohan Low, Acting General Manager, Digital Creative Content, MDEC.
